    Crossing Borders is a group exhibition featuring new works by the national roster of artists represented by A R T Squared. This collective body of work aims to serve as a stimulus for original thought and heightened unity during these challenging times.

    The Crossing Borders identity utilizes Neue Haas Unica to represent a diverse group of contemporary artists whose works and ideas intersect and overlap, bound by a shared commitment to individual artistic expression. The Toaster Project is an art auction/fundraiser held in tandem with Crossing Borders for the benefit of Boulder nonprofit, There With Care. Ten local, national, and international artists have transformed red toasters into sculptural art objects. All of the donated works will be up for auction the night of the event. 100% of the auction proceeds will support There with Care.

    The Toaster Project identity borrows from Crossing Borders in its use of Neue Haas Unica as the two shows share the same gallery. The Identity wanders and differs in its reliance on SangBleu Kingdom to both soften and highlight the underlying theme of the exhibition. Auction paddle numerals are set in Neue Haas Grotesk.

    Artists included:
    Carole Barnes, Berger & Föhr, Steve Cieslawski, David Ivan Clark, Amy Clay, Pasquale Cuppari, Kelly Degnan, Gail Folwell, Scott Fraser, Gina Freschet, Mieko Hara, Steven Hook, Roland Hower, Susan Knickle, Lisa Kowalski, Marina Nash, Josh Pass, Jim Pittman, Bill Snider, Robert Striffolino, Lori Swartz, Anna Ura, Nancy Utterback, Ann Vandervelde, Jerry Wingren
